Screenings, coming and going
Iowa City, after the polar vortex dropped down on the mid-west, and stumbling to the conclusion of this leg of travels – coming up in a few days the Orpheum in Fairfield Iowa, home to Maharishi Vedic City, and a lotta TM (and that doesn’t stand for Trade Mark), and a haunt of David Lynch. 7 PM, the Orpheum, Thursday Nov 20.
Here in Iowa City had a nice Sunday afternoon screening at FilmScene, a very nice small cinema in the center of town. A modest audience, but very engaged, for both Last Chants for a Slow Dance, and for Coming to Terms. Very good post-screening discussions that continued over beer and a dinner afterwards. (Thanks Andy and gang!)
And then, found on the website for Chicago’s Gene Siskel Film Center, a little review from 2 years ago that had eluded me. Screenings there this Saturday, Nov 22, 8 pm; and again on Monday, Nov 24 at 8:15.
This December I’m off to Europe for a bit – primarily to do a little artist’s residency in the small Andalusian town of Nijar, near Almeria. There I’ll screen a few films with Spanish subtitles – La Lunga Ombra, and Coming to Terms – exhibit pastels and watercolors, and mount some video installation pieces. Return from that on Jan 16, 2015, to attend – finally – a New York City screening for Coming to Terms in the Museum of the Moving Image’s showcase, First Look. that will be 2 pm, Sunday, January 18. In/around NYC to mid-February. If anyone reading this can arrange anything else on the East Coast and down to the deep south, contact me please and let’s set something up. From NYC in mid-February my wife and I will be heading to the south to shoot for Plain Songs, aiming for Austin screenings at the Austin Film Society by early May.
